Mavs owner Mark Cuban is stepping up for Mavs hourly workers after the NBA postponed the season after Jazz center Rudy Gobert contracted coronavirus.

In the middle of Wednesday night’s Mavs- Nuggets game, Cuban said that he was going to set up a program for Mavs hourly workers to get compensated for their time off while the league went on hiatus.

On Thursday morning’s edition of ‘Get Up’ on ESPN Cuban was a bit more specific as how workers would be paid during the NBA’s suspension of play. According to Cuban, the Mavs would pay workers for the next 4 scheduled home games “as if they worked”.

The Mavs have only seven home games left on the schedule but there is no word on when the NBA would resume play and for how long.

As of now no other NBA owner has commented about whether they would pay their hourly workers.
